Fisher & Paykel was founded in 1934 by Sir Woolf Fisher and Maurice Paykel in New Zealand as an importer of domestic appliances. When the New Zealand Government introduced tariffs on imported appliances in 1938 the company began manufacturing Kelvinator washing machines under liscence. Following expansions in the 50’s, the company began exporting to Australia and East Asia in 1968 and Europe in 1992. Nowadays the company exports appliances to over 80 countries.
Fisher & Paykel currently offer four different models of clothes driers, ranging in load size from 4 kilograms up to 8 kilograms. All Fisher & Paykel driers come with the unique quad fin system as standard, which ensures that your clothing is dried faster and more evenly than traditional twin fin systems. Larger Fisher & Paykel driers also come equipped with sensors designed to dry your clothes as efficiently as possible, saving you money and time.
When it comes to customer satisfaction, Fisher & Paykel are tops, winning the Canstar Blue Most Satisfied Customers – Clothes Dryers Award in 2015. With five stars for value for money, performance and reliability, drying time and feel of clothes, Fisher & Paykel clothes dryers are hitting the spot.
